MEDICAL TECHNOLOGY DAWNA TORRES MUGHAL, PH.D., R.D., Program Director Medical technologists are problem-solvers, dealing with the complexities and outcomes of medicine and science. They provide invaluable service to patient care by performing a wide range of laboratory tests, confirming the accuracy of test results, and reporting the test results to the pathologists and other physicians. Medical technologists work in blood banking, chemistry, hematology, immunology, and microbiology. They apply their solid foundation in the sciences and laboratory education to the screening, diagnosis, and treatment of diseases. Practice settings for medical technologists include hospitals, independent laboratories, clinics, public health agencies, and industries. Molecular diagnostics, molecular biotechnology companies, and other specialized laboratories offer additional career opportunities. Experienced medical technologists have opportunities to advance their career by specializing in certain areas, such as cell marker technology, bioengineering and cancer research, drug testing, therapeutic drug monitoring and biogenetics. Industry offers career opportunities in product development, marketing, sales, and quality assurance. Currently, the demand for medical technologists far exceeds the supply of educated professionals qualified to work in such jobs. With continued population growth and medical advances, the need for laboratory science professionals is expected to increase. The goal of the Medical Technology Program is to provide a solid program of study that qualifies students for admission to a hospital-based program for clinical or laboratory education. The mission of Gannon is inherent in this goal. The program involves three years of study at Gannon and a fourth year of clinical or laboratory education at a hospital-based medical technology program accredited by the National Accrediting Agency for Clinical Laboratory Science (NAACLS). Currently, through an agreement for educational purposes, Gannon is affiliated with the medical technology programs of Saint Vincent Health Center, Erie, Pennsylvania; and W. C. A. Hospital, Jamestown, New York. Students may apply to any hospital having an accredited medical technology program in the United States even though Gannon is not affiliated with that program.
